Ok, so…

It’s been a pretty crazy couple of weeks. I’ve worked every day since the 6th and it just hit me that I won’t get a day off until the 22nd. Literally. But I’ve actually really enjoyed the last week and a half. I’ve been babysitting for the toddler and we had our AIA Winter Retreat over the weekend. I love all three of my jobs. 🙂 It also just hit me that I have three jobs. How come I still can’t afford the iPad? 😉

A few weeks ago my bro came to hang out with us. We went to YoPop (per usual) and he got one of every flavor. And ate it all.

The next day we hung out with our AIA buddies and watched the Super Bowl. You probably could guess that I didn’t give a flying flip about the football. Just the commercials. And the baby. I just want to squeeze her!


Confession: I’ve been watching a lot of Gossip Girl. It’s so bad. But so good. I just love the fashion. And how come our uniforms were actually uniforms and they just wear whatever the heck they want to school?

Anyway, hanging out with the toddler has been fun. Especially the outfits.

They say necessity is the mother of invention. Why didn’t I ever think to eat with a fork in one had and a spoon in the other? It makes eating yogurt and macaroni & cheese so much easier.

I’ve also been jogging to the park with the toddler. Somehow she knows when I take the long way there. And at some point she inevitably picks up crap and throws it. (Not literal crap. I’m a better babysitter than that.) After this photo I had to comb through her curls to dig out the pieces. And still found some on the couch later.

Ah, don’t you love those curls?

I was way more excited about Valentine’s day this year than I have been since 3rd grade. I’m not sure why. I just wanted to make fun treats and paint my nails red. So the toddler and I made some pink cookie sandwiches and some rice krispies treats.







The word “treats” is always spoken by the toddler in a reverent whisper. I learned last week that her dad gives her a “special treat” on Sundays to keep her quiet during church. I tried to ask her questions about it to figure out what it was. All she said was it’s sticky. Turns out it’s a ring pop.

I painted her nails yesterday. She loved it. I was shocked that she sat still long enough to let them dry. And to take this picture.

I had a pretty good Valentine’s day myself. 🙂 B-money perused my Pinterest and got me a ring I pinned.

Love it! We’re going out to dinner tonight to celebrate. I’m looking forward to him being able to drive and to having leftovers for lunch tomorrow. 🙂
